Massive media campaign is being launched to 'seduce' people into voluntarily receiving the H1N1 shot at mass vaccination sites which intend to vaccinate 75000 people per day, with a goal of giving 75% of the population the shot. We are to receive cards in the mail telling us when, according to our age and health status, it is our turn to present ourselves at these mass vax sites to receive our shots. The Canadaian vaccine, manufactured by GSK, is Pandemrix,which contains the dangerous adjuvant, squalene, as well as thimerosal (mercury). The media is outright lying to the public about the presence of these ingredients and the dangers posed by them. In July of this year, the Quebec government passed a law allowing themto forcibly vaccinate people under a 'public health emergency'. While the vaccine is voluntary at this time,it remains to be seen whether these powers will eventually be enacted against the refusers. pandemrix et ingredients (document de GSK) www.emea.europa.eu Squalene lie au Gulf War Syndrome: Squalene adjuvants are used to induce arthritis in rats.

Québec a Nation History (Part 16) Battle of Ste-Foy and Pontiac Rebellion The Battle of Sainte-Foy, sometimes called the Second Battle of Quebec, was fought on April 28, 1760 during the Seven Years' War also called the French and Indian War. It was a victory for the French under the Chevalier de Lévis over the British army. When compared to the Battle of the Plains of Abraham of the previous September, this battle proved to be a much bloodier affair in terms of the total number of casualties incurred by both sides. Pontiac's Rebellion was a war launched in 1763 by a loose confederation of elements of Native American tribes primarily from the Great Lakes region, the Illinois Country, and Ohio Country who were dissatisfied with British policies in the Great Lakes region after the British victory in the French and Indian War. Warriors from numerous tribes joined the uprising in an effort to drive British soldiers and settlers out of the region. Warfare on the North American frontier was brutal, and the killing of prisoners, the targeting of civilians, and other atrocities were widespread. In what is now perhaps the best-known incident of the war, British officers at Fort Pitt infected the Natives with smallpox using blankets that had been exposed to the virus. The ruthlessness and treachery of the conflict was a reflection of a growing racial divide between British colonists and American Natives.
Québec a Nation History (Part 15) Battle of the Plains of Abraham The Battle of the Plains of Abraham, also known as the Battle of Quebec, was a pivotal battle in the Seven Years' War referred to as the French and Indian War in the United States. The culmination of a three-month siege by the British, the battle lasted less than an hour. British troops commanded by General James Wolfe successfully resisted the column advance of French troops and Québecers military under Louis-Joseph, Marquis de Montcalm, using new tactics that proved extremely effective against standard military formations used in most large European conflicts. Both generals were mortally wounded during the battle; Wolfe died on the field within minutes of engagement and Montcalm died the next morning. The French forces continued to fight and prevailed in several battles after Quebec was captured, but the British did not relinquish their hold on the fortress. It was the beginning of 250 years of occupation.
Québec a Nation History (Part 13) British Conquest of 1758-1759 Battle of Louisbourg The Siege of Louisbourg was a pivotal battle of the French and Indian War in 1758 and led directly to the loss of Quebec in 1759 and the remainder of French North America the following year. The British government realized that with the Fortress of Louisbourg under French control, there was no way that the Royal Navy could sail down the St. Lawrence River for an attack on Québec. An expedition against Louisbourg in 1757 led by Lord Loudon failed due to a strong French naval deployment. The conquest of Québec is more than a single battle, it is the result of a long siege that lasts from June 26th to the 18th of September 1759. During this interminable confrontation, Montcalm adopts a purely defensive strategy and chooses to take no initiative against the enemy. Wolfe attempts twice to take the city before September, but his troops are defeated and repelled on both occasions. Despite these failures, the English surround the city with their boats and bombard it day and night for weeks, reducing theonce proud capital of New France to a desolate pile of smoking ruins. We estimate that about 15 000 bombs were thrown on Québec that summer and the fate of the surrounding villages is also far from lenient. Farms are pillaged and burnt, villages are ravaged and the inhabitants who did not join the militia (women, children, elderlies and priests for the most part) are incarcerated in prisoner camps ...
Québec a Nation History (Part 4) The Fall of Huronia The beginning of the Iroquois Wars The story of the Jesuits in Huronia and the genocide of the Huron peoples by the Iroquois - Mohawks. The fall of Huronia enabled the Iroquois to concentrate their subsequent war efforts on the French settlements in the St. Lawrence Valley. The wars were extremely brutal and are considered one of the bloodiest series of conflicts in the history of North America. The resultant enlargement of Iroquois territory realigned the tribal geography of North America, destroying several large tribal confederacies including the Hurons, Neutrals, Eries, and Susquehannock and pushing some eastern tribes west of the Mississippi River. It was the beginning of the beaver wars, also called the Iroquois Wars or the French and Iroquois Wars, commonly refer to a brutal series of conflicts fought in the mid-17th century in eastern North America. Encouraged and armed by their Dutch and English trading partners, the Iroquois sought to expand their territory and monopolize the fur trade and the trade between European markets and the tribes of the western Great Lakes region. The conflict pitted the nations of the Iroquois Confederation, led by the dominant Mohawk, against the French. It is during that war that occured the Battle of Long Sault and that Dollard des Ormeaux became a Hero.
Québec a Nation History (Part 10) The Acadians Deportation The Acadians are the descendants of the French who settled in Acadia located in the Canadian Maritime provinces Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and in the US state of Maine. Acadia was founded in a region geographically separate from Quebec, Québecers and Acadians have different culture. But during the deportation many refugees move in Québec, today almost all Québecers can say they have a Acadian ancestor. In the Great Expulsion of 1755-1763, mostly during the Seven Years' War, British colonial officers, New England legislators and militia deported more than 14000 Acadians from the maritime region. Many later settled in Louisiana, where they became known as Cajuns. University of Maine at Fort Kent history professor Roger Paradis said that this was a clear case of ethnic cleansing and genocide because, an attempt was made to make French Acadians disappear by scattering them throughout the 13 colonies. It was unnecessarily cruel in the sense that ships were overloaded, which resulted in disease, death, and the sinking of vessels. Families were broken up and the Acadians were sent to an alien and unfriendly land of exile.
Québec a Nation History (Part 8) Cause of the French and Indian War The French and Indian War, also known as the War of the Conquest (Guerre de la Conquête), was a war fought in North America between 1754 and 1763 The first major event of the war was in 1754, when a Virginia major named George Washington, was sent to negotiate boundaries with the French. Washington stumbled upon the French about 40 miles before reaching Fort Duquesne. In the ensuing skirmish, an officer named Joseph Coulon de Jumonville was among French casualties, news of which would have certainly provoked a strong French response. Washington pulled back several miles and established Fort Necessity. The French attacked this position on July 4, forcing Washington to negotiate a withdrawal under arms.
Québec a Nation History (Part 5) The End of the Iroquois Wars The beaver wars, also called the Iroquois Wars or the French and Iroquois Wars, commonly refer to a brutal series of conflicts fought in the mid-17th century in eastern North America. Encouraged and armed by their Dutch and English trading partners, the Iroquois sought to expand their territory and monopolize the fur trade and the trade between European markets and the tribes of the western Great Lakes region. The conflict pitted the nations of the Iroquois Confederation, led by the dominant Mohawk, against the French. The Filles du roi or King's Daughters in English were between 800 and 900 Frenchwomen who immigrated to New France (now Québec) between 1663 and 1673 under the monetary sponsorship of Louis XIV, to marry and start families in an attempt to further populate New France. There exists an occasional misconception that many filles du roi were recruited from among the dregs of the population of Paris, and that many were prostitutes. This story, while untrue, comes about from the fact that a few Parisian prostitutes in the 17th century were arrested and transported to a penal colony in the Antilles islands.
Québec a Nation History (Part 3) Samuel de Champlain The French-Indian Alliance
Québec a Nation History (Part 2) 1608 Samuel de Champlain Samuel de Champlain, "The Father of New France", was a French navigator, cartographer, soldier, explorer, geographer, ethnologist, diplomat and chronicler. He founded Quebec City on July 3, 1608, and served as its administrator for the rest of his life. He forged the Great French and Indian Alliance.
